Today in 1963, The Rolling stones played at Ricky Tick Club, Star and Garter Hotel, Windsor, Berkshire. This 1960’s rhythm & blues club in Berkshire hosted many influential artists which also included Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, The Who, Eric Clapton and Cream. John Mansfield recalls the first time he saw The Stones. The music promoter was in search of bands to put on his newly established club’s stage. He heard about The Rolling Stones before and booked them to play at Ricky Tick for the first time in December 1962. The Stones, now a multi-million-album-selling band, got their first big break in Windsor and actually played Ricky Tick’s at least 39 times during 1962 to 1964.
